Entering Senior School
A Partnership with Parents
Choosing a new school can be a difficult but rewarding task. Many parents of prep school pupils are considering senior schools by year 5 when boys and girls are 9/10 years old. Whilst this may seem early for some, it does give the opportunity for parents to consider 13+ entry to Epsom at just the stage that 11+ testing is happening at other schools.
At Epsom we make our Admissions process less stressful because we build on trust and partnership with feeder schools rather than relying upon impersonal, competitive pretesting alone. This is supported by our new, highly effective Transition Programme. Only too aware of how challenging the transition from a junior to senior school can be for both pupils and parents, the College has put in place a unique programme dedicated to the social and educational welfare of its new pupils.
External links with feeder schools have been enhanced by providing more specific and diverse events tailored to the special interest groups of many families, generating more opportunities to visit Epsom and to learn more about what we have to offer your son or daughter.
